Konstantinos Korkodeilos will study piano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and Lantian Gu will study piano at the Royal College of Music.‘I am equally terrified and excited!’ says Madeleine. ‘I can't wait to throw myself into an environment that is all singing all the time and I am very excited to work with like-minded people. Having been active in King's Opera during my three years at King's, I am really looking forward to getting involved in any small way with the opera scenes and operas that take place at the Royal Academy of Music.’
Konstantinos said: ‘I am looking forward to studying at Guildhall and learning how to master playing the piano. At the same time, I’m extremely excited about going to this conservatoire as there are lots of opportunities for young musicians, and especially pianists.’'I'm very grateful for my time at King's, which has helped me become a better musician’ says Lantian. ‘I'm also very happy to have been accepted by the Contemporary Piano program at the Royal College of Music, and I'm looking forward to playing in contemporary music ensembles with the other students.'
